  • Case Ref: FS50073711
  • Date: 2 November 2005
  • Public Authority: Home Office
  • Summary: On 03/01/05 the complainant requested information concerning immigration policy. The Home Office did not respond until 19/09/05, when it declined to provide the information as doing so would exceed the prescribed cost limit. The Home Office asked the complainant to refine his request in order to attempt to bring it within the cost limit. He did so, however he was then informed that the information sought was exempt and subject to public interest arguments. The Home Office has breached the time for compliance under the Act and has advised the ICO that it expects to provide a substantive response to the complainant by 14/12/05.
